Skip the Lines at the Los Angeles Lobster Festival 2010

Last year, we attended the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival and we noticed that lines were extremely long. Solution: Purchase VIP tickets. In our article last year, we warned that attendees might wait an hour to get their meal. VIP tickets allowed the Disarray Magazine staff to cut ahead of the line, get a free beer and enjoy our delicious lobster meal while others were still waiting.

"First Class Guests can choose from two options - with and without a lobster meal. With the meal tickets cost $39.00 and without the meal only $25.00. If purchased separately all the First Class benefits would cost more than $50.00." - Jim Hall, Festival Producer

This year, we suggest that attendees spend a bit more cash on a VIP ticket. Read last year's coverage: L.A. Lobster Festival Offers Family Fun

For more information about the event, see below:

First Class Tickets for the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival are now on sale. With no increase in price this year, they are widely regarded as the way to go for guests who want to avoid the crowds, get to the head of the line and dine in a secluded area all while supporting a local charity. One-third of the purchase price does directly to Harbor Interfaith Services.

First Class tickets may be ordered three ways: Online at or by calling Harbor Interfaith at 310-241-0292, at their office at 1002 S. Pacific Ave in San Pedro or in person at the First Class booth during festival hours. Last year profits from First Class ticket sales went to support Harbor Interfaith's food bank and family intervention services and helped feed over 2,000 people for two months.

First Class Guests can choose from two options - with and without a lobster meal. With the meal tickets cost $39.00 and without the meal only $25.00. If purchased separately all the First Class benefits would cost more than $50.00.

First Class guests check-in at a private area at the entrance of the festival, have a special dining area reserved just for them, can come and go all weekend long for no extra charge, and get a special wristband that allows them to buy drinks and pickup meals without waiting in line. The First Class meal includes a slice of watermelon in addition to a 1.25 lb fresh steamed Maine lobster, potatoes, cole slaw, sweet bread roll, butter and lemon wedges. For only $13.00 each they can also add extra lobsters to their plate. First Class guests also enjoy a welcoming beverage with their meal (must be 21 or older for alcohol), a collectable full color poster from rock artist Jeff Nicholas' Uprising Creative and lobster beads. Credit cards are accepted at the First Class booth.

Tickets may be ordered by calling the Harbor Interfaith offices at 310-241-0292 or by going to the festival's secure order page at and click on the "tickets" link at the top of the page. There is no need to order in advance like other festivals, First Class Tickets are available for purchase on site each day.

"Our First Class Ticket is a real bargain. Best of all we're able to deliver the benefits of First Class service and give our guests a choice in meals. A lot of folks told us they would pay a little more for a lot more convenience and that's what a First Class Ticket gives them. We'll still be selling the same great lobster meal for only $18.00 each - a price that has only gone up one buck in six years. There is no better dining and entertainment bargain in Southern California. If you choose the First Class with meal option, you will be saving over $16.00. Compare our First Class ticket with similar offers at other festivals, and see what a good deal it truly is."

The Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival has raised over $200,000.00 for local non-profit groups. 2009 beneficiaries of the Lobster Festival include Harbor Interfaith Services, Pedro Pet Pals, and the San Pedro Rotary Club.

BEAUTIFUL RIGHTS Gives Women’s Rights Some Real Lip Service

Beautiful Rights is here to give women’s rights some real lip service. This new, cause-driven makeup initiative, founded by renowned makeup artist and product developer, Kristen Therese Leonard, was created to ensure that women’s rights continue to be given their share of voice in our country’s future.

As we enter into 2017, real concerns regarding women’s rights are upon us. Beautiful Rights was created to remind every woman to speak up, and that the responsibility lies within each of us to protect the rights we’ve fought so hard to acquire.

Beautiful Rights will promote women’s rights by donating 20% of all sales (not profits) to organizations that support our causes, such as Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, Emily’s List, Lambda Legal and Legal Momentum. The 20% contribution is set as a reminder of the fact that women in the U.S. still get paid 20% less than men for doing the same work.

Not only will Beautiful Rights fuel great initiatives, it will also provide women with top-of-line…

Summer Survival: Pick the Most Breathable Fabrics

Summer is inching closer, and while we're all psyched for the perpetually warm weather ahead after a tough winter, pretty soon it's inevitable that the heat, humidity and summer sun will leave us feeling, well, less than fresh.

Chrissy Volk, wardrobe consultant for Adahlia Volk has put together a cheat-sheet for navigating through the best, most breatheable fabrics for the season. Who ever looks at clothing "ingredient" listings on the tag - well, this season think of it as your guide to "cool."


COTTON + STRETCH = CUTE BUTT: Cotton jeans are the lightest for summer because they are airy and breathable, however, jeans with a small content of stretch are the most flattering. They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content. A jean with either a 98% cotton/2% lycra or 96 % cotton/4% Lycra fabric, is a good combination. J…

Book Review: "Feel Me Fall" by James Morris

Survival, suspense, fear, love, death and a major plot twist are a few key themes that describe the brand new Young Adult novel, Feel Me Fall, by James Morris. Having read two of his previous books, including Melophobiaand What Lies Within, he definitely succeeds at taking you on a crazy adventure where you can't stop reading as you'll want to find out what happens next. The first few chapters of Feel Me Fall are reminiscent of the classic book, Lord of the Flies, the TV show "LOST," and even the Tom Hanks movie, Cast Away, where a plane crash in a remote area forces survivor(s) to fend for themselves away from modern day luxuries and civilization. One of the major differences is that Feel Me Fall is centered around high school students, where their teen issues collide with primal survival instincts. 
Unlike Lord of the Flies, which was written in 1957, Feel Me Fall gives a glimpse of today's world where parents and teens dabble in video games, things go viral on …
